Orange and Green

Not much today.

Roasted Carrot

Oil and salt.

Dried Kiwi

Reminds me of the Chinese bakery/candy store (got these at the chain supermarket).

That’s it for today.

Thanks for dropping by.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse.


Shoyu Pork

This week’s one-pot. Actually this week there were two-pots.

First, shoyu pork.

Pork Belly, Par Boiled, Washed

Pork, dark soy, ginger, Crown Royal Apple, water, salt, brown sugar, star anise.

Into the Pot

The Cat threw in green onions from our outside pots.

The Mouse threw together something to accompany the pork.


Wood-ear fungus, dried shiitake mushrooms, dark soy, sugar, salt.

Dark Matter

Good thing The Cat took white rice in her bento for contrast. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Old School Lunch Counter

Stopped in here (The Mouse’s chiropractor doctor is nearby) to get a couple pastries, some for The Cat’s grab-n-go breakfast for the week, some for The Mouse. Hee hee.

Menu Cover

Since The Mouse was there … might as well get lunch. Hee hee again.

Counter View

No tables, counter dining only, like the old time diners. Several years ago, fine dining restaurants in SPAM Land touted a community table. Nothing new, these lunch counters are the original community tables. Everything old is new again. Hah!

Lunch Combo Special

Grilled chicken (meh), grilled mahi (awesome), white rice, lettuce and tomato salad (with dollop of mayo). The only thing missing is food is not on a blue plate. Hee!

Plate comes with bakery specialty butter roll.

Butter Roll

Sliced in half, grilled on the flat top, with the bakery’s famous/infamous neon radioactive jelly (The Mouse’s description). Breaking it down, The Mouse thinks the jelly is fruit punch syrup with gelatin. Just a thought.

Butter Roll Prep

Even the uniforms are a bit retro (or maybe never changed at all).

Oh, and the take home pastries?


For The Cat: cornbread, blueberry and almond danish. For The Mouse, bear claw, and tuna and ham bun (last night’s dinner). 🙂

The Mouse’s spine got adjusted, lunch counter plate lunch, butter roll with glow in the dark jelly, pastries for the near future. A good day. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse

The Mouse’s favorite meat – pork, but you probably already knew that. Another favorite, although very distant, turkey.

Yesterday’s feature at the snack shop, turkey.

Chili with Hotdog, Roast Turkey

The chili was very good. The turkey, not so much. Turkey was cooked well, but the gravy (supposedly a new chef) was “salsa-like”, kinda tomatoe-y, green pepper-y? Uhm, no. For The Mouse, turkey is giblet gravy. Sigh.

Luckily, the grocery store also featured gravy yesterday.

Roast Turkey with Proper Turkey Gravy


In the end, the day redeemed itself. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Crunchy Stuff

One of The Mouse’s food weaknesses is potato chips. But, doctor put it on the “do not eat” list (fried, too much fat). Humph!

Saw this at the supermarket:

Bacon Crackers

Package says it “oven baked, not fried”. Hee hee.

Inside Package

As crunchy stuff goes, not bad. Lighter than potato chips but still satisfying. The bacon flavor? Ok, but I think I’ll try the sea salt next time.

Last day of the work week. Whoo Hoo!

Enjoy. Eat well.
